My friend just posted this on his Facebook page. It seems to be some Egyptian styled statue, and foyer. It looks like the entrance to Abu Simbel, just smaller. The picture claims it is in Shenzen, China. I wonder if this was made as a tribute to the Egyptian style temples, or if it is authentic. Here is the picture.

I did a google search, but could not find any sites references this Egyptian site in China. I think it looks more like a tribute done recently, since the hieroglyphs look like they were made recently. There's not a weathered appearance you see on the authentic statues and temples. It could be the type of stone used, but still, I don't think it is real.

Oh, well, I didn't think they were real. I found some more information. It turns out it the "Windows of the World" park in Shenzhen, China. It is a replica of the original Egyptian site. Here is another picture.
